Inaugural Meeting

Our first meeting will take place on Friday 4 November at 5:30, at Pushkin House. Stuart Eagles, author of After Ruskin: The Social and Political Legacies of a Victorian Prophet, 1870-1920 (Oxford University Press, 2011) will introduce texts by John Kenworthy, the Tolstoyan writer, publisher and founder of the Croydon Brotherhood Church and the Purleigh Colony.  The texts will be circulated by email shortly.

If you would plan to attend the first meeting, it would be very helpful if you could email Becky Beasley ( and Matt Taunton ( so we have a sense of potential numbers.
